One package of mine (exult) exposes bugs in the Alpha version of g++
2.95. g++ 3.0 works well, so I had to force it (it's not default there).

Note that this makes your package dependent (at least on those
architectures where enabled) on the 3.0 g++ libraries. This can make trouble
with testing, but currently g++ seems synced in testing.

For simplicity, I opted to compile it with 3.0 on other platforms as
well ... this may or may not be appropriate for you.
